COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with our German ale yeast, lightly toasted malts and enhanced with a blend of winter spices this beer should do the trick. Malty, rich, and a touch spicy.

Bottle @ home via trade with pineypower. Thanks so much! Pours a dark rust orange appearance with a foamy, cream colored head. Very spicy, pear/apple, chewy, toasty malty aroma. A bit thin. Cinnamon, apple, toasted malty, light caramel, a bit smoky, light citrusy flavor. Not my favorite but a cool beer.

Some spice, drinkable enough. Above average carbonation. A tad above average mouthfeel. Medium yellow body.

Bottle at home. Pours brown with off white head. Nose and taste of nutmeg, mint leaves, all spice, cinnamon, toasted malts and light grassy hop. Medium body. All of the spices are quite light. The mint stands out for me.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Kuwait Airways. Coppery brown with a fine slender cap. Heavily sesame-accented aroma with cooked brown sugar and dank English woods. Dull dirty English/German keller flavour exactly like a guzzled prematch pint of Cottage in The Crown. Mainly sesame, hazelnut, finely sieved cocoa and decaying leaf matter. Another minor stinker from The Captain, certainly not one worth dragging across the water. Even with 92kg to play with.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle on the first day of winter. Pours a clear copper with a medium to large sized white head. Malt and a touch of spice on the nose. Medium bodied, a bit of sweetness, malt, a touch of spice. Warming into the finish, smooth and malty. Very easy drinking.

KyotoLefty (6139) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle from BOTW. Caramel malt nose, like an Alt somewhat, chocolate, herbal spicing, orange, mint maybe. solid malt, not so sweet, spicy. Chocolate and caramel, herbs, cinnamon, nutmeg maybe. bitter, slightly astringent finish. Clean enough, but the spices are a bit much. Well, thatís what it aims for. Not my cup of tea, but not bad.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JAN 6, 2014
1/6/14. Noles need to get it together right now. 12oz bottle thanks to JBVatkeens. Almost clear amber pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring. Mild aroma, malty, light bready and biscuit notes, subtle spice. Light, but nice. I hate spice bombs. Malty flavor, toasted caramel, bread, biscuit, subtle spice, lingers a touch. Mild, but not bad at all.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a clear deep golden-orange with an average size long-lasting frothy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet and vegetal along with lightly toasted malt, some spices and fruit. Flavour is malty along with light spices, some light sugary sweetness, some vegetal notes and light hops. Average to medium bodied. Disappointing really, I was expecting much better, itís just O.K. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (5898) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
12oz. Tasted at RBSG grand tasting post-tasting. Clear amber color. Thin of-white ring of head. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light rough texture. Caramel malt. Bigger spice taste. Moderate sweet, moderate spicy. Tastes OK. Meh. I feel like even if this was fresh it still wouldnít be my speed.
